The Kathy Kallick Band is based along the West Coast — Kathy and Tom are from the San Francisco Bay Area, Annie’s from Portland, Cary from Seattle, and Greg from Anchorage — but their powerful mixture of original and classic material, mirroring their distinctive combination of traditional and contemporary sensibilities, has great appeal everywhere.
There is a tendency to think of West Coast bluegrass as being softer, jazzier, and somehow “other” than traditional. This can be the case, but there is also a school of bluegrass in Northern California which has, from the beginning, been steeped in Monroe-based tradition — as well as welcoming to women and original songs.
Kathy Kallick has been leading bands in this traditional brand of West Coast bluegrass for many years, and continues to evolve as one of the music’s extraordinary composers and vocalists.
